Suboxone treatment has been used in millions of Americans under medical supervision. This drug “Suboxone” is called an opioid partial agonist because it binds to the same brain receptors and opioids but is not an opioid itself. Because of this Suboxone is use to replace harmful drugs , such as heroin.
Opiods attach receptors in the brain, with three main effects; reduced respiration, euphoria, & decreased pain. The more opioids ingested the more of an effect. The process of opioids binding to the opioid receptors can be thought of as a mechanical union, the better the fit the more opiode effect. Buprenorphine is different. It too binds to the receptors, however, without a perfect fit. As a result, the Buprenorphine tends to occupy the receptors without the opioid effects. The recptor is tricked into thinking it has been satisfied with opioids without producing strong feelings of euphoria, and without causing significant respiratory depression. This prevents the receptor from joining with full opioids; therefore if the patient uses heroin or painkillers, they are unlikely to experience additional effect. Buprenorphine tends to stay with the receptors, blocking them, much longer than opioids do. This is what makes Buprenorphine last up to 3 days.
